The email alert service is designed to inform you of changes to published Met Office web pages. You will need to be connected to the internet to view the alert information.
To view alert information, follow the hyperlink in the email body text.
Warnings are issued and updated on a regular basis and cover a range of dates and times. During an active spell of severe weather, it is possible that you will receive a number of alerts on a daily basis which reflects the dynamic weather situation as it evolves.
Follow the hyperlink in the email body text, which will take you to the Met Office's weather warnings page for the affected region. This will show the areas for which the warning applies.
It is not currently possible to select warnings for just one Unitary Authority. It is only possible to receive all warnings issued within the region(s) that you have subscribed to.
Some warnings are only valid for a short period of time. If you view your email alert several hours after it was issued, e.g. view an e-mail issued at 2 a.m. at 8 a.m. the following morning, you may find that the warning does not appear on the website. This is because the period of validity of the warning has passed and it has removed from the website as it has expired.
This service is managed on behalf of the Met Office by GovDelivery. If you have trouble receiving subscription alerts or unsubscribing to lists, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions or comments about the information contained in the messages or on the Met Office's website or if you have feedback about the support services you've received from GovDelivery, please contact us .
